Finding it hard to sleep recently?
The Apple Watch Series 4 is currently one of the best, if not the best smartwatches out there in the market today. It offers various fitness and health trackers, but unfortunately, Apple hasn’t released an official sleep tracking app it. While we wait for them to get on that, here are some third party Apple Watch apps that can help you doze off to dreamland before you can even say “zzzz.”
AutoSleep is an easy app to begin with if you want to start tracking your sleeping patterns. All you need to do is download and set the app up on your smartwatch, no login necessary. The app can show you how many hours you sleep on average, what time you’re usually awake or asleep, and what your heart rate was during your sleeping sessions. Another feature is the ‘Sleep Bank,’ which gives you extra credit the more hours you sleep each night. AutoSleep costs $2.99 on the iOS App Store.
Sleep++ is a rather basic app, but if all you want is to track your sleeping times, then this should be good enough for you. The app has two modes, auto mode and manual mode. Setting it to auto mode lets the app determine whether you’re asleep or awake based on your movements. Manual mode, on the other hand, allows you to press “Start Sleeping” and “Stop Sleeping” to let the app know when you’re dozing off. Sleep++ is free to download on the iOS App Store.
SleepCycle tracks your sleep patterns like the other apps listed above, but it comes with one other unique feature. Its built-in alarm can study your sleep pattern and set an alarm to wake you up at the “best” time for you, based on the data gathered from your sleep patterns. You can always adjust the time if you want, but it’s a fascinating way to track your sleep nevertheless. SleepCycle is free to download on the iOS App Store for the first month of use, but charges a $29.99/year subscription after the trial expires.
